The Ultimate Canvas Creator

We’re thrilled to announce The Ultimate Canvas Creator, an exclusive pack brought to you by Nathan Brown of Trailhead Design Co. and Design Cuts. This set, which has been months in the making, was designed to bring an aspect of unmatched realism to your digital art. Once you’ve experienced painting on these surfaces, you’ll never go back to a plain white screen again.

This versatile pack was created to address the reality that the surface of a painting has just as much impact on the outcome as the brush strokes themselves. This is commonplace in the world of traditional art and something that Nathan has long considered true in digital art as well. The way light reflects on a textured surface can completely change a painting’s appearance. For this reason, the collection of tools found in The Ultimate Canvas Creator was created to tackle that very need, that of enhancing digital art with rich surface texture.

This past year, Nathan has been working on both the Ultimate Brush Toolbox and the Ultimate Canvas Creator with the aim to make them the most definitive digital art experience available. It’s his belief that these two products, combined with on-screen drawing tools like the iPad Pro or a tablet monitor, are the closest you can get to experiencing traditional art in a digital environment!

    Do the surfaces come at a certain size or are they in style form that can be applied to any size surface? I create some art for licensing so I work in very large sizes, like 40×50 inches at times, canvas size is very important to me.

    • Zack Parks

      Hey Ksenia,

      Thanks for getting in touch and I can certainly help answer your query now :). These canvases are all at 30dpi resolution so rest assured you scale these canvases to your required design needs :).

    Was is the canvas size for this? Thanks.

    • Zack Parks

      Hey Rhianon,

      Thanks for getting in touch and rest assured I can certainly answer your question now. In this pack, some of the canvas sizes may slightly differ depending on what program you are working in, however, I have checked a few of the parts to double-check these for you and these canvases should be 4000x6000px. I hope this helps Rhianon :).

    I’ve only had time to play with half the surfaces / files in this pack and I’m already super impressed. I wasn’t sure it would be worth the price tag but it totally is, everything is well organised, high resolution, easy to install and use, and clearly a lot of time has been put into creating each surface. They are wonderful to paint and draw on. Thank you for all your hard work in creating these!!

    • Zack Parks

      Thanks Harmony. we’re glad to hear that you are enjoying working with your new resources and we can’t wait to see your future designs – Happy Designing!

    I just bought these. Look brilliant. Just 1 query: my paint media pack for procreate came with 11 and not 14 canvases. I’d like to know if this is normal please.

    • Zack Parks

      Hey Simon thanks for getting in touch with us and I am sorry to hear that you may be missing some resources. Rest assured I can certainly help. I can see that you have also reached out via email, and so you should receive an email from me shortly.

    In Photoshop… the option to ‘Show Recent Brushes’ was added to the Brushes panel in the Oct 2017 release and a Search Option was added to the Brushes panel (as well as Swatches, Gradients, Styles, Patterns, and Shapes) in the Oct 2020 release.

      Thank you Julie for teaching us something new. I’m sure this will help with a lot of our community’s projects in the future. We hope you have a lovely day Julie :).
